Video: Actual Play: Alien RPG Cinematic Starter Kit “Chariot of the Gods” Part 3

The third, but not final session, of the Cinematic Starter for the Free League Alien RPG available for download with all pre-orders of the game. Cinematic adventures are one-shot scenarios with pre-generated characters that replicate the tension and high body count of the Alien movies.

After restoring the reactor and repairing the engines the Cronus is now up a running and auto-pilot takes over. Thank you, special order 966. We are down one player this session so Cham will be an NPC for now.

Our only complaint about the PDF is that it is not very printer-friendly being mostly light text on a black background. So we created a printer-friendly version of the character sheet and a player reference to help anyone interested in trying this adventure.

Check out Tabletop Audio for their amazing RPG sound effects: https://tabletopaudio.com/

Episode 221: Interview with Ken Spencer from Why Not Games for Rocket Age 5E

Ken Spencer talks to us about the Why Not Games Kickstarter for the adaption of Rocket Age to “the world’s greatest role-playing game” 5th edition. He also talks about the inspiration for the setting and also their plans to keep all books for Rocket Age available in both “classic” version, using the original Vortex system, and the DnD 5e ruleset. If you like pulp science fiction with a modern 1930s viewpoint and only ever play DnD, check out Rocket Age 5e.

Episode 220: Interview with Lou Agresta from Iron GM Games for Grimmerspace

We were lucky enough to get some time with Lou Agresta in the middle of the Kickstarter for Grimmerspace, a scifi horror setting for the Paizo Starfinder RPG. We discuss the choice of the system, playing horror in an RPG, Sean Astin’s involvement in the project, the Grimmerspace setting and setting-specific character classes and technology. We played the free starter adventure available on the Kickstarter page called Abbatoir-8 and we recount a little of our experiences. #grimmerspace #starfinder
